My name is Tyler Jay.
I’m a writer, traveler, wildland firefighter, climber, and coldsmoke junkie. When I’m not walking through a burnt forest as a Wildland Firefighter, or obsessing over my next gear purchase, I like to spend my time exploring the inanimate bluffs and peaks around Western Canada, and the rest of the world (whenever possible). Whether with a pair of sticky soled rock shoes, or a couple planks of poplar and carbon, the mode of transportation has the same goal: adventure.
This blog serves as a record of those adventures, and lessons learned along the way.
This is an account of what I see, what I learn, people I’ve met, foods I eat, and beards (sometimes)
